Criminal Justice Review Project
Fresh evidence recently uncovered by ECU Law students may lead to a second appeal for Perth man Arthur Greer, following his 1992 arrest for the murder of a Mosman Park school girl Sharon Mason. Law students involved in the Criminal Justice Review Project (‘Innocence’ Project) have been investigating his case for the past two years.
The Criminal Justice Review Project pursues the exoneration of those who have been wrongly convicted. It normally considers requests from applicants to review a case when conviction has occurred, the appeal period has expired and DNA testing or other procedures may provide new evidence that leads to exoneration.
Case reviews are driven by students, under the careful guidance of senior legal practitioners and scholars. Students and scholars are drawn from a variety of disciplines such as law, criminology, forensic science, and forensic psychology. These multi-disciplinary teams work collaboratively on a pro-bono basis.
